Filmed in Manila the capital of the Philippines. Burt Reynolds was actually beaten up when people didn't realise a movie was being filmed. Reynolds recounts "I told the guy ahead of me to knock down anything and keep going. He ran into a marketplace that wasn't blocked off. They didn't know it was shooting because the camera was far away with a zoom lens. He began knocking down old ladies as he ran, and before I knew it I was surrounded by six big Filipinos will beat the living hell out of me. They left the beating in the final print." See more »

It must have been a frustrating time for Burt Reynolds!! A good role in"100 Rifles" and then the lead role opposite Anne Margaret in "Sam Whiskey" before he made this low budget flick.
Plot In A Paragtaph: Pat Morrison (Burt Reynolds) leads of group of salvagers to hunt for some hidden gold before World War II. Blackmail and betrayal soon follow.
Burt Reynolds makes the most of his role and shows great promise for more important roles. He emerges the movies real star "acting wise" and he is the best thing about this flick. So often the case during Reynolds early movies.
Reynolds fast-moving performance adds the movies only real excitement, and there is a surprise ending, which Hollywood would probably never pull now.
